To protect the health and safety of our community, and to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19, we will be moving 6X6NW online this year!

Artists may submit up to 10 unique works. Please do not register until you have your works completed as we need titles for each piece.

Entries will be exhibited virtually on the 6X6NW website on October 2, 2020 and offered for sale to the public for $36 each. The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council will receive a 60% commission on any works sold and artists may elect to waive their 40% commission and contribute their work(s) as a full donation to benefit the Arts Council’s community arts programming and events.

The artwork will be available for the month of October for purchase.

Award winning artist and SAN cartoonist Whitney Potter participated in 2019
